The prompt for this assignment was to observe mundane things in one's daily routine and develop a sequence/story in the form of a video or a series of stills.
I approached the prompt by taking note of the absurd habits that I have and exaggerating them to convey a deeper idea. For this video, the habit that I decided to be conscious about was putting my pillow on my face while lying down (I noted that I do this quite often). Exaggerating the representation of this mundane act itself led to the cultivation of a concept that was socially charged, dark, dramatic and to some extent morbid. It could represent a struggle to breathe, being suffocated, anxiety, panic, stress etc.
